Hiep Thanh Hotel
Reviewed 12 May 2014

Everything was looking great with our reservation, the staff all were very helpful and the room was great value for money within the house at the rear of the resort. This was the closest we were going to get to the beachfront for under $15. The restaurant is right on the beachfront and only a few metres walk from our room. The room was changed every day, fresh bedding, towels and floor swept.

Usually very precautions when it comes to our valuables and tend to keep them on our person at all times, we got a little too comfortable with our surroundings it's seemed. We booked a snorkelling tour thorough the hotel and that day decided it would be better to leave our valuables in the room.

I only noticed when we had checked out that we had missing a 1000 thai baht note, (approx £20) and a £20 (GBP) note, which were kept safely with our documents in a passport holder and water sealed pouch in the bedside drawer. Knowing the only time we had left any valuables unattended this seams to answer all the questions!

I should have been more precautious and less trustworthy but you don't expect these things to happen.

Highly recommend this hotel to anyone. We stayed here four nights, and everything was great. The rooms are very clean, nicely decorated and finished, the location is of the best along Long Beach, the breakfast buffet is very tasty, and the staff, especially the manager Nga and her husband, are lovely and took great care of us! We also rented a Moto from the resort at a very good price, and enjoyed very much our stay here. Will go back when we return to Phu Quoc!

We stayed four nights at Hiep Tranh hotel with free pickup at the airport by the hotel staff. We booked a regular room which we found very comfortable with mosquito net on the bed and all the usual amenities (a/c, tv).
Overall the staff was very helpful and friendly with the exception of the female restaurant staffs who were rude most of the time. We believe it was due to their inability to communicate any english.
We were able to book many tours at the reception desk, but we encourage you to shop around as there are slight variation of the offered tours. One of the tour we did was a private tour to explore the north side of the island. We booked this tour with the local mr. Bean who owns a small grocery shop very closeby. This tour costed 60$us for full day(8h). We were enchanted by this tour as mr Bean personally enriched our experience with his stories about the island and we had the flexibility to really extend our times to the part of the tours we enjoyed the most or even adapt and skip some parts. It was a little more expensive than the regular group north island ground tour, but we believe that this tour is really well suited for a private tour. You pay for the car, so for 3 people it would have been almost the same price as the group tour.
The food at the hotel restaurant is okay for the breakfast but a bit limited variety and even not so tasteful for the regular menu. There are a few good restaurants nearby on the main road, so don't bother. I suggest you to definately go take a look at Duong Duong fish market were you will have an amazing sea food experience at reasonnable price. We went there twice at night time.
We can easily recommand this hotel as you will have a direct access to the beach (beach chair and umbrellas), comfortable room at reasonnable price.

The staff see you as their source of work rather than employment; smiles and attention are not included.
Breakfast is hot, warm and cold but in all the wrong places, however the local dogs have no problem enjoying the food scraps in and around your table.

Can you sleep with insect repellant? Get used to it or spend a long night defending yourself from squadrons of microscopic bugs that never quench their thirst.

For the price of $40/night (Std room) it's poor value compared to HCMC and Vung Tau as far as I can see.
Beach is nice but coming from Australia, I've seen better...mmm.

Basic rooms but with hotwater and airco. Nice beach, limited but fine breakfast. A bit too expensive for €30 a night, should be closer to €15. Internet is fine, location is a bit far from town, but you can rent a scooter at the hotel for Only 170.000dong.

I'm not sure when the last time the rooms got more than a 'wipe over' as dust was visible in the air every time the sun shone. When it wasn't shiny you then got the musty damp smell.

They have a gorgeous beach, but there seemed to be hundreds of people crammed on it, definitely more people on their beach than guests they have..

Have a walk either way and just find a quiet bit of beach!
